- Wedding: June 2013
We had to cut back quite a lot on our guest list originally because we are paying for our wedding ourselves. We only gave +1s to people in stable relationships, married, engaged, etc. The guest in question was not given a plus one. She is single, but “dating” like 6 guys (as you will see). She is a family friend and knows plenty of people at the wedding. We sent the invitation addressed just to her, but she sent it back with a guest added. We decided not to make a stink about it, but asked her who she was bringing. At that time (in May), she said she didn’t know yet. Ok fine… So fast forward to two weeks before the wedding. We were making our place cards, on which we printed each guest’s name. We sent her a message asking who she was bringing. She did not reply. This Monday, 4 days before the wedding, we sent a second message explaining that we needed to print his place card and had to bring them to the reception venue Wednesday. Today, Billy(FI) got this reply. I think it’s ridiculous, and I really wanted to say something to her, but I refrained. I figured I would just vent to you guys. Thanks.. maybe you can get some entertainment out of it lol
Who is your guest for the wedding?
I will be attending alone … just wanted you to get head count correct
Way to wait til the last minute! Lol
Well l know how important it was for you to know his name…so Man1 will be in Lake George; Man2 has to work; Man3 is stuck in the city (he works for Homeland security and is busy cleaning up terrorist); Man4 won’t be home in time; Man5’s daughter is having surgery; Man6 has to pull a double; and Man7 can’t get off work…. so l will come alone. If I have annoyed you enough, you can tell me to stay home too.
Guest, I was filling out seating cards and didn’t want that to be the only one that said “guest”. Specifics about your personal life is none of my business. I wasn’t trying to make it a big thing, but I hadn’t heard from you at all. No need to be dramatic.
Stress is a terrible thing. I’m not being “dramatic” … my life is far too uncomplicated for drama. As I stated from the beginning, I did not know who would be free to escort me, as it turns out they were all busy. Etiquette states it is ok to put down guest. It would of been terrible if Man1 said he was coming with me and then Man2 came. I would of been embarrassed trying to explain to Man2 who Man1 was. You wouldn’t just put guest, so I had no choice but to wait until this week to give you a name. And as it turns out…I’m coming alone. I dont appreciate being called dramatic when you created the problem in the first place.
Ok, I’ll let you win this one because I’m not going to argue when it shouldn’t have been a big deal in the first place. See you Friday!
There’s always two sides to everything Billy. Common sense should win out every time. I would of loved being escorted to your special day, but the other Gods have other plans I guess
Don’t worry, plenty of friends around to show you a good time. I’m sorry the date didn’t pan out, but don’t let that stop you from enjoying yourself.
